Crusader Kings II and The Old Gods Giveaway

It has been a while since I ran a contest, so when I saw Crusader Kings II discounted on Steam it seemed like a perfect opportunity.  The prize up for grabs is The Old Gods DLC, Steam Edition.  So you'll need to have Crusader Kings II on Steam to be able to use the prize.

UPDATE 8/3:  The prize now includes a copy of Crusader Kings II.  So you will now win both the original game and the latest DLC.  If you already have it, you can always gift it to a friend.

This contest also lets me test out some new Sites with Benefits functionality.  Specifically the addition of codes, Pinterest, and Twitch.  These are pretty new, so let me know if you run into any problems.

This will be a lottery, so complete missions to earn points.  Those points can then be used to buy lottery tickets.  The contest will end on Tuesday, August 6th.  The winner will be automatically drawn.  If you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment.

Get started using the Sites with Benefits on the right. 

A little about CKII: The Old Gods...

  • Play as a Pagan chieftain and ravage your weak neighbors. If you remain at peace for too long, your people will grow restless...
  • New special start date in 867 AD: The Viking Rurik has founded the kingdom of Rus and the Great Heathen Army under the sons of Ragnar Lodbrok rampages through England.
  • Play as a Zoroastrian lord and restore your ancient religion to prominence.
  • Adventurers: Landless characters can gather armies and go off to carve out new realms on their own.
  • Prepared Invasions: Declare your intention to invade and watch your armies grow with adventurers and restless warriors, but don't wait too long to start your war or it might all fall apart...
  • Rebels with a Cause: Rebels are no longer a faceless menace – they are now led by characters with agendas.
  • Loot and pillage provinces. Burn down their cities and take their gold!
  • Sacrifice to Odin at the great Blot!
  • Christians and Muslims can dispatch missions to convert the depraved heathens.
  • New beautiful Pagan interface skin.
  • New events and decisions: berserkers, sejdr, curses, omens, divinations, runestones and much more.
